Visit from Mrs. Claus

Mrs. Claus will be reading to children on Friday, December 3, from 4:00 - 5:00 PM in the library. She is really excited about this visit and will be happy to answer any questions the children might have about her husband, the reindeer, and the elves. She might even have a special "little something" for those who attend.


Getting Started with Medicare:

Join us for an informative Medicare session and learn how and when to enroll, various Medicare Health Plan Coverage options and what to consider when selecting what's right for you. We will also discuss Prescription Drug Plans and answer your questions. This program will take place at the library on November 3rd, 1:30 to 3:00. It will be presented by Toni Schaller: IMO Agent, PA, UnitedHealthcare, AARP Medicare.

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR ANNUAL FALL BASKET SOCIAL...

Thanks to everyone who supported our annual basket social. Our donors donated 240 baskets, gift items, gift cards, gift certificates, and hand-crafted items. Our volunteers spent countless hours organizing and prepping items for display in our windows prior to the auction, and then transporting, setting up, and cleaning up before and after the auction. Our loyal patrons and friends purchased tickets and attended our auction. Also, we welcome our newest patrons who signed up for a library card that day. While not all expenses have been tallied, we can safely say that we made more than $5100. That money will be used to cover operational expenses. SINCERE THANKS TO EVERYONE!

The library is selling the bags for $3.00. Stop by the library and purchase this "steal of a deal" book bag during regular library hours. Your purchase helps us keep our doors open! We sincerely thank the Reese's for their generosity and their continued commitment to the Slatington Public Library even from afar.
